Abstract

 

This paper presents adequate treatment characteristics of the problem of hazardous waste while providing a specific example of the problem. Hazardous waste being discussed here is galvanic sludge. Furthermore, not only is the hazardous waste problem within a company discussed, but also on a national level. The MID-MIX® procedure was chosen and described as an optimal solution for adequate hazardous waste treatment, as well as activities and listed documentation on a possible procedure of transporting the waste discussed here to the treatment plant. With a view to demonstrate the problem solving procedure, a flowchart has been used as a graphical representation technique of a realization of a process. Improper waste disposal, especially of hazardous waste, has a tremendously negative effect on the environment. In this particular example it impacts the agriculture, and thereby the food production. Finally, directions for future work on this subject and solutions for the hazardous waste problem on a national level are provided here.

 

Key words: Best available technology not entailing excessive cost (BATNEEC), MID-MIX® procedure, waste management, hazardous waste, waste generator, sustainability.
